On Saturday, May 18th, 7 Middle School Scholars visited James Madison University. Our middle school Scholars spent their Saturday experiencing the college campus. They started the day with lunch in the cafeteria. After lunch our students explored the campus with Terrence, who was specifically assigned to enrich their experience. Terrence works in student athlete services at the university and spoke to students about the importance of balancing sports while earning a degree. FLOC students experienced athletic facilities, academic buildings, and group study rooms. The time spent touring the vast campus will be an experience these middle school students will carry with them as they matriculate through their high school and post-secondary education.
